Tagged !

I've been tagged by the lovely Jenn for this meme:
Pick up the nearest book and turn to page 123.
Find the 5th sentence.
Post the next 3 sentences.
Here's what I found:

"At the same time, her mind was - in every sense - where she was to spend the evening, and she had to be at ease with herself. She stepped out of the black crepe dress where it fell to the floor, and stood in her heels and and underwear, surveying the possibilities on the wardrobe racks, mindful of the passing minutes. She hated the thought of appearing austere."

- from Atonement by Ian McEwan -

Yeah, I wouldn't want to appear austere either !!!

Okay, your last comment (Yeah, I wouldn't want to appear austere either!) cracked me up because I thought the same thing as I read the last line of the quote. Ha!
